T-Mobile Will Not Offer Premium Handset Protection For The Nexus S

With the original Nexus One, Magenta offered Premium Handset Protection (PHP Insurance), so you would think that they would do the same for the new Nexus S, right? WRONG.  T-Mobile has stated that the Nexus S is not eligible for Premium Handset Protection (PHP).  So if you’re one that drops his or her phone a lot, you might want to look into a third-party insurance company such as SquareTrade.

Is Verizon Single-handedly Responsible For Androids Success?

In the midst of yesterdays Verizon LTE announcement, a little ego showed on behalf of Verizon as they proclaimed themselves responsible for the success of Android. “Android really took off when Verizon got involved” is the direct quote from Verizon CTO Tony Melone and comes off pretty matter of fact.

T-Mobile Drops Official Statement On Even More Plus Availability
